SPECIAL NEEDS - Pierre is a darling little schnozzle saved from the streets from Mexico. He is up to date on his vaccines, neutered and potty trained. He is loving and sweet and gets along with other dogs. He needs a special diet foods for kidney disease. Pierre is approx 2 yrs old PLEASE NOTE: Breed mix info is the best guess of ScratchMyBelly and our vets. There is no way to know for certain what any dogs breed mix is without a DNA test, so we have no way to know whether or not this dog is "hypoallergenic". Since he/she is a mixed breed, and could have as many as 4-5 breeds in his/her mix, it is safest to assume this dog is NOT hypoallergenic. Homes with doggie doors will not be approved, sorry we are seeing a lot of problems with unsupervised animals and wild life. We require a Home Check to set you & our Dog up for a successful transition into his/her furever home. This is only about the safety of the dog & in no way a judgement of you or your home. Our contract states that should you not want our Dog for ANY reason we will happily take our Dog back into our Rescue. *WE NEED AN ADOPTION APPLICATION TO START THE PROCESS* 1. Submit Application Go to our website www.scratchmybelly.org/forms. Your application is not a guarantee of placement, our process is not first come, first serve and we have the right to refuse the application. If you “rent” please make sure you check with your Landlord you can have a pet prior to submitting your application, many landlords have weight and/or breed restrictions. 2. Interview We endeavor to make sure we are matching you with the right dog so a phone interview helps to insure we are all on the same page. 3. Meet the Pet We can Meet n Greet at Home Check or you meet the foster. Every situation is different. We try to accommodate each on a personal level. 4. Home Check We check for safety for the dog. We know our dogs well & can spot a potential problem quickly. We also call this a meet n greet. 5. Sign Adoption Contract Contracts are signed the day of adoption, we accept PayPal to the Rescue Group & the Dog goes to his new home. Due to the hundreds of inquires we cannot guarantee anything. ALL THE APPLICATIONS ARE SENT TO THE FOSTER FOR REVIEW. IF THE FOSTER CHOOSES YOUR HOME FOR ONE OF OUR DOGS, SHE WILL "CALL YOU" WITHIN FIVE DAYS OF RECEIVING YOUR APPLICATION. OTHERWISE, YOU WILL NOT HEAR FROM THE FOSTER. It does not help us if you are sending us multiple emails, texts and calls. We are a volunteer based rescue organization.
